4.0 out of 5 stars Suitable for grades 1-2 23 May 2011
Format:Paperback
I teach piano and am using this book for my students who approximately grade 1-2 standard. It will take them a few weeks to learn one piece. Each piece is 2-3 pages long. Some of the adaptations are better than the others, but at least this book gives a piano student an opportunity to learn some fun music at a relatively early grade. The pieces are all in simple key signatures (maximum 2 sharps/flats).

I have purchased many of the books in the Really Easy Piano series and find them to be generally good value for money and suitable for students of all ages at the early grades. If you are deliberating which one to buy and you don't have a teacher like me who has a lot of them that you can view, then see if you can find out what songs are in the books and pick one with songs that you are interested in learning. That is the one disappointing thing with buying manuscript from Amazon - you can't see the list of pieces before you buy the book!

New Chart Hits contains the following pieces:
Broken Strings - James Morrison and Nelly Furtado
Better - Boyzone
Chasing Pavements - Adele (NB this is not a great adaptation so I don't recommend that you buy this book only for this piece, as you might be disappointed)
Greatest Day - Take That
Hallelujah - Alexandra Burke
Human - The Killers
I Hate This Part - The Pussycat Dolls
If I Were a Boy - Beyonce
Issues - The Saturdays
Just Dance - Lady GaGa
Love Song - Sarah Bareilles
The Man Who Can't Be Moved - Script
Run - Leona Lewis
Say (All I Need) - One Republic
So What - Pink
Take a Bow - Rihanna
Viva La Vida - Coldplay
Warwick Avenue - Duffy
Closer - Ne-Yo

5.0 out of 5 stars A Real Hit With Pianists 20 Feb 2010
Format:Paperback
Learning to play the piano could not be more fun these days with books like this, making chart hits playable for grade 3-4 level pianists. The LH part is kept reasonably easy so you can focus on the melody. The only difficulty with most pop tunes is the rhythm.

4.0 out of 5 stars Self taught piano player 10 Jan 2011
Format:Paperback
I have taught myself to play the piano and particularly enjoy playing modern popular hits as in 'New Chart Hits'. Lyrics are included so you can sing along, which adds an extra dimension to just playing the music. My personal favourite pieces are 'Broken Strings' by James Morrison and 'Take a Bow' by Rihanna. I would recommend this book to both beginner and intermediate players who are looking for fun pop songs to improve their playing ability!

5.0 out of 5 stars Love it! 27 Sep 2010
A Kid's Review
Format:Paperback
As a 12 year old who has just passed a grade 1 exam, i love thhis book. Its good because its reasonably easy and the tunes actually sound like the songs (LOL ;-P). There are many well known songs in the book and there are words printed in between the RH and LH music.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great piano book!!! 6 April 2011
By Tillie
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is amazing, the songs are great. I'm really bad at piano and am only due to do my grade 2 at the end of this year and i have not previously done any other grades. Now when i say grade 2 i dont mean that really i am probably going to fail but i would say this book is full of grade 1 to grade 2 songs, so not entirely "really easy". I would recommed you to buy this book but don't be disappointed if your a grade 1 and can't play them you will find them hard but it is a good book to have to start to work out the notes in both hands and you will be able to pick them up with a bit of work.Also they aren't songs a normal piano teacher would give there not classical or silly rhmyes they are proper songs that everyone knows and loves.Hopes this helps make your mind up.x

3.0 out of 5 stars Really easy Piano 13 Mar 2014
By PJE
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am not sure I would describe this as 'really easy'. Whilst melodies are easy to work out, the left hand often needs greater dexterity. Having said that I provides a wider range of repertoire for students.

I cringe when my students bring these books into lessons. The music is poorly arranged and often don't sound exactly how you would hear the song!
